4.5lb bass caught in the rain 10-15ft on brush piles with jigs. Took around 15lb on the local tournament today also. Budlight tomorrow goods luck! My estimate is that it will take 18lbs plus to take FIRST and 15lb might get a check! Going to be a good day to fish.

Lake Whitney Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake has a very very low chance of producing a smallmouth bass. Reason being they restock the lake at the wrong time period like when the stripers are crusing shallows?! Makes since plus they are scared of the "Golden Alge". Wish they would get over it and restock the smallmouth everyear so Lake Whitney can become a great smallmouth lake in the future like it was many years ago. They have been caught but in extreamly few numbers over the last few years. Be nice if the restocking group would get together and make the lake more than a small time striper lake.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):

Lake Whitney White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Sandbass in full swing heading up the creeks especialy on the sunny warmer days. This is early for the lake but it also just came up in the neighborhood of 8ft. so with that and few good days of warm weather and the started. Slowed a bit for the cool front but just wait for a few warm days ahead. Lures Always flyrods, small jerkbaits "rebel" hint cheap and work, tiny rattle traps,small popper, and crappie style jig and baits that imitate small baitfish work also. crankbaits can work but when the water gets realy clear they tend to shy from them in the river.

Found a few stripers up shallow today busting on the top and bringing them in on just about anything you can get infront of there faces quickly. Last three days caught from 3-7lb stripers this way, calmer days make it easier to spot them pop the top.

Lake Whitney Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
